There's about to be a lot more registered voters in the state of New Jersey, which already has 5.8 million people on its rolls.

Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday he will sign into law a bill that would automatically register people to vote if they apply for a driver's license or non-driver ID card in the Garden State. Murphy, a Democrat, said in a tweet that he will sign the legislation on Tuesday.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — A baby was found dead in a suitcase left near PATH tracks in Jersey City on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

The gruesome discovery was made about 12:40 p.m. underneath the Tonnelle Avenue Bridge, just off Broadway, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office said.

A PATH train crew spotted a suitcase near tracks not far from the Journal Square stop and called police, sources told PIX11 News. When officers arrived, they found human remains in the container.

The prosecutor’s office described the victim as an infant and said homicide investigators are on the scene.

Additional details were not immediately available.

Newark will be the fourth city in the world -- and the first in New Jersey -- to provide high-speed wifi "Link" kiosks that will allow pedestrians to charge their phones, make a call or download music and movies, free of charge.

The multi-million dollar investment in the city by Intersection, a New York-based technology company, comes at an exiting time for Newark, which was recently named a finalist for Amazon's second headquarters.

"Newark is here, we are on the map," Aisha Glover, president of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC) said during a Wednesday press conference at NJIT. "We are claiming our space. We certainly feel like this is our moment."

JERSEY CITY -- Two city police officers have been suspended without pay after getting into a fight with a Domino's manager while on duty, officials and witnesses said.

Rodney Clark and Courtney Solomon are both charged with making terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, and harassment for the incident that occurred on Tuesday, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement.

Marina Elsamina, an employee at the Communipaw Avenue pizza shop, said they received an online complaint on Tuesday evening by one of the police officers, apparently over a delivery issue.

Re: Latest market report...

Home away from home


Perhaps the biggest eye-opener in the report is Downtown Jersey City, which appears to have taken a pause after briefly overtaking Hoboken as the market leader last year. The average sale price of 1-4 family homes was $1.35 million, up 3% in the quarter but off 11% since last year. Condo sale prices fared better and averaged $729,000, a 2% quarterly increase and 4% gain year-on-year.

Where the Downtown market is headed remains to be seen, and some have argued home values could decrease due to significant tax hikes that are coming to many properties. However, a similar revaluation in Hoboken a few years ago did not cause a massive downturn in price appreciation and demand in the townhome market as many predicted.

While 1-4 family homes in The Heights continued their hot streak, the average sale price for condominiums in the neighborhood actually fell 28% in the quarter to $297,000, which was off 11% year-on-year. Average rent in The Heights held at $1,700/month, down 8% in the quarter and unchanged compared to 2016’s 4th Quarter.

Elsewhere outside of Downtown, sales of 1-4 family homes in Greenville averaged $295,000, while sale prices for condos in the neighborhood jumped 8% in the quarter to $410,500. West Bergen’s condo prices held steady at $325,500, unchanged in the quarter but up 12% year-on-year. Bergen-Lafayette remains the hardest neighborhood to gauge due to low inventory of home sales, but average prices of 1-4 family homes weighed in at $435,000 and condos averaged $395,000, increases of 5% and 15% respectively year-to-year.

Latest market report...
#11
Home away from home
Home away from home


It was another big quarter for The Heights in the latest South Hudson County Market Report, and the numbers, for the first time in a while, demonstrate that some relief for renters has finally arrived. But while there’s mostly good news for property owners, the potential effects of Jersey City’s property revaluation loom large over Downtown’s neighborhoods.

Pure Properties’ report for Q4 of 2017 reflects uncertainty over the looming reval, Jersey City’s first since 1988. The Mayor’s office released preliminary information suggesting that taxes on properties in Downtown Jersey City’s neighborhoods are expected to increase by an average of 60%, and residents in Paulus Hook and Van Vorst Park are faced with 75% and 67% respective increases. On the flipside, neighborhoods such as Greenville, West Bergen, and The Heights are anticipating tax reductions of 40%, 32%, and 18% respectively.

How much impact those potential numbers have on the market remains to be seen, but buyers and sellers seem to be preparing for the new tax realities already. For the second straight quarter, the strongest year-on-year appreciation in Jersey City was found in outer neighborhoods: median prices for 1-4 family homes increased in The Heights by 40%, jumped 22% in West Bergen, went up 20% in Greenville, and appreciated 18% in Journal Square

Building collapses

A building collapsed in Jersey City as a nor’easter battered the region.

No one was injured in the collapse.

The building collapsed in downtown Jersey City Wednesday afternoon, Jersey City Fire Chief of Department Steven McGill said. Its west wall collapsed onto an adjacent structure.

The building, which was residential, had been empty for six to eight months after engineers deemed it an “imminent hazard,” McGill said. It was supposed to quickly be taken down, but for some reason it never happened.

A private company will demolish the building Wednesday because of the possibility of danger if it collapses further. The street has been closed off while the company handles the demolition.

The area was cordoned off after the collapse. The collapse caused a power outage at homes across the street.

About 4 inches of snow have accumulated in Jersey City.

Natives like myself have been speaking of the gentrification of Jersey City for a decade now. Many poor Jersey City families have had to move out because they could not afford it anymore. Most were POC but poor is poor and knows no racial boundaries. My family was originally from DT, and now most don't even live in JC anymore. Anytime I raised these concerns online or in a group setting, I was always told variations of "oh well, the city is more safe now and theres more places to eat so the gentrification was a good thing". Twitter (usually on Fulops tweets), NextDoor, Reddit it was always the same story. Now that the bill has come for those who benefited, we're seeing protests and media coverage. People in this thread and other places have been making the argument that "Old lady Sally has lived here her whole life, why should she have to sell her house". I made similar arguments for years. But in my case "Old Lady Sally" was "My Puerto Rican Aunt", and my argument fell on deaf ears.

Because of this, I'm finding it very hard to feel sympathy for the DT owners. The NIMBYS of DT have demanded so much from their politicians. Bike lanes, revamped parks, additional policing, festival after festival, road work. It has always seemed like a major portion of the city's expenditures have been centered Downtown. And the rest of the city has footed the bill. Not anymore.

The assessment company predicts that the biggest impacts will be felt downtown, while residents elsewhere in the city – in particular the Greenville and the southernmost part of the city – will actually see sharp declines.

Greenville, the West Side and The Heights, including areas such as County Village and Society Hill, may see decreases when the final numbers are released.

Community activists have long complained that residents in poorer neighborhoods have been paying too much in taxes, artificially subsidizing lower taxes for residences downtown.

Although the numbers throughout the city have yet to be fully released, Councilman Michael Yun predicts that Jersey City Heights – which was hit hard in the last revaluation in 1988 – will not be as negatively impacted as downtown was.

“The Heights are still an attractive place to move,” he said, suggesting that a trend that started well before the revaluation of residents moving from downtown to The Heights might increase as the results of the revaluation push people out downtown.

The problem is that downtown residents may not be able to sell their properties as easily as they might have before the revaluation.

In some cases, pending sales of properties were held up in order to see what the new taxes would be.

“This is bad news for everybody,” said one local real estate agent. “People looking to buy here don’t look at neighborhood by neighborhood, they’re thinking Jersey City, and this revaluation is saying Jersey City is too expensive.”

NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY.COM) - Municipal officials in Jersey City, New Jersey, haven't taken a look at property values in 30 years. It means some have been paying more in taxes than they should and others have been paying less. And trying to fix the problem has created another mess.

Dolores Renner, a resident of 74 years, is so afraid for her future that she was speechless. She learned that her taxes



are doubling to more than $20,000 a year. She said she can't pay that much and now worries

blah, blah, blah you all knew it was coming. I left downtown because I knew I would not be able to afford the new tax hike. I expect my taxes here to go down, I will no longer be subsidizing taxes for the millionaires club. Move to Texas if you want cheap taxes.

Jersey City puts end to police officers working off-duty jobs
#23
Home away from home
Home away from home


JERSEY CITY -
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop has pledged to put an end to city police officers working off-duty jobs in the wake of a corruption scandal within the department for doing just that.

Fulop made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday. He says that the median income for a Jersey City police officer is about $100,000. He says that some officers were able to make double or triple that amount by working off-duty jobs.

Fulop says that his issue is that corrupt police officers have been defrauding the city by filling out and submitting time sheets for off-duty work that they never actually did.

“We don’t think that the stain that this program has put on the reputation of the city is something that should continue,” Fulop says. “We’re going to eliminate it.”

Mortal Again: Christie Blocked at VIP Entrance to Newark Airport

Meet Chris Christie, former New Jersey governor and current nobody at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The two-term Republican, who left office on Jan. 16, was blocked from a VIP entrance he had used for eight years, and directed to stand in Transportation Security Administration screening lines at Terminal B like anyone else, according to a person familiar with the incident.

The order came from police for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, according to the person, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about security matters. The Port Authority also operates the George Washington Bridge, the target of a plot by Christie aides and allies to tie up traffic for political punishment in 2013.

Murphy Signs Order Combating Gender Inequality
#29
Home away from home
Home away from home


By PHIL GREGORY

Just hours after being inaugurated, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed his first executive order. It promotes equal pay for women.

Murphy says the order prohibits any effort by a state agency to ask a job applicant about their wage history.

“Here and now we begin the process of bulldozing the roadblocks that have kept women from being paid fairly, that have kept many women of color from fulfilling their dreams of entering the middle class and that have allowed our wage gap to persist.”

Female lawmakers who attended the signing ceremony praised Murphy’s action.


Senator Sandra Cunningham says the executive order shows the state will treat women with dignity and respect.

“We have to be a state in which we are judged not by the color of our skin, not by our gender, but by our qualifications. And this says that is what we are going to do.”

Assemblywoman Joann Downey is thrilled Murphy made the executive order his first official action.

“We’ve been crawling, especially when it comes to women’s rights and to making sure that we have pay equity. But now with a Governor like Phil Murphy we are going to fly.”

Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt hopes lawmakers can work with Murphy on additional pay equity issues. She favors allowing women to recover back pay for inequitable salaries.

“We need women to be paid for what they’ve worked whether or not it was yesterday, or whether or not it was five years ago. So it’s vitally important that we continue this particular effort.”

Former Governor Chris Christie vetoed legislation that would have allowed a worker who was paid an inequitable salary to recover back pay for an unlimited number of years. He said it should be limited to going back two years as required by federal law.
